Excerpt from Indo-Iranian Phonology: With Special Reference to the Middle and New Indo-Iranian Languages
It is a well-known fact in linguistics that languages which are entirely without in¿uence one on the other often show a striking similarity in their development. The indo-... iranian group is especially instructive in this regard, for its time-limit extends from the period of indo-iranian unity to the present day, while its geographical area stretches from the Sinihalese in the south to the Mazandaranl in the north, and from the Kurdish in the west to the Bengal! In the east. Between the Indian and the Iranian divisions of the Aryan dialects a development may be traced which is frequently closely parallel. Such a study, which it is my mm and intention to make, might be of service in the study of dialectic developments in general, and although confined to the indo-iranian dialects, it might by its implications be not altogether without hearing on the interests of the great body of the Indo Germanic phonology.' The result of the investigations which I there proposed to make has been, at least to me, a signal confirmation of my belief.
